“Ethan did a very good job on our mortgage. Home bridge was not the most competitive on rates but did have competitive fees and saved in closing costs. I continue to believe the lock process is not transparent and could be improved for the consumer. Overall happy with Ethan's performance.”

“Ethan was kind, precise and fun to work with. He was always available when we had any questions and made us feel as though every question was valid. He was on our home-buying journey with us.”

“In my last response on the previous page, I spoke highly of Ethan Manela. What a wonderful human being & asset for Homebridge. My realtor liked using Ethan for her customers, so she had him contact me to get pre-approved. We had just looked at one home & were scheduled to look at four more the following day. I needed a pre-approval asap. I contacted a prior finance officer with my credit union, who would give a great discount if I went with them, but after completing the paperwork online, it took another 5 or more days to get a pre-approval amount. Ethan gave me a tentative pre-approval amount right away & knowing my credit union finance officer was giving me a discount, he went the extra mile to earn my business by also giving me a discount. Ethan responded to any questions through email or phone almost immediately. We were close to closing & I contacted him about changing the down payment amount after my car died unexpectedly. He said we could still do that & gave me monthly payment amounts based on how much I wanted to put down. That helped make my final decision. Ethan is very good with people, communicates well, is very professional and positive. If I hear of anyone needing financing for a home, I'd definitely recommend Ethan. Sincerely, Wendy Stokes”

“Ethan was great to work with! He was always friendly, courteous, willing to take the time to clarify anything that I didn't understand and to assist me in any way that would make the process easier and less complicated. I had never been through this kind of financial process before, and I appreciate how patient and kind he was.”

“Excellent, on time, responsive, informative”
Katharine I. Jun-20
“Ethan Manela was INCREDIBLE! My husband and I were in good hands for the entire process. Ethan kept us informed, answered any number of questions (even ones he had explained and answered multiple times, he was willing to explain them again and again to me). He was willing to have evening phone calls, because it worked for our schedule, and he always seemed about 2 steps ahead of the process to let us know what we could be expected and prepared us for any situation (COVID-19 also as an extra throw in obstacle). Because of Ethan, we were prepared for anything. I will sing it from the rooftops that this man needs a raise! He is a stellar employee.”
Kyra-Denae C. Jun-20
“He was great. He was always available to answer any questions I had at any time of the day. He always kept me updated on how the loan process was going.”
Logan S. Jun-20
“Extremely helpful, and would definitely use tome after time!”
April C. May-20
“Ethan did a great job working through the complexities of our specific case, and there were many. He was a bit lax on communication at times, but in the end he was able to get us where we needed to be and did so while maintaining a professional, cordial level of customer service. Overall, he did a great job and we would work with him again.”
Karl R. May-20
“I've used Ethan before, and I will use and recomend him until he retires”
Christine S. May-20
“Ethan Manela is fantastic! I've worked with Ethan for years. He is diligent, accurate, his follow up is thorough. A client feels like they are the only client that he is working with at the time. His knowledge of the industry and being able to work through challenges is superb. Highly recommend!”
Joshua J. May-20
“Great experience. Ethan was awesome all the way through. Communicated and explained everything very well. Answered all my questions and went above and beyond. Thank you very much.”
Kayla B. Apr-20
“Ethan was so wonderful to work with! After receiving many declinations for a loan, Ethan worked hard to make sure we could be financed. He was responsive and honest about every step of the way even if it wasn't great news. I would definitely recommend working with Ethan!”
Aubrie W. Apr-20
“Ethan was very communicative through the process and made my first time home-buying easy. Everything went smoothly and efficiently, I couldn't have asked for a better lender for my first home!”
Jeffrey E. Feb-20
“Ethan was great to work with. Very responsive to any text/email/phone call. He worked with us through the long process of finding a home and figuring out what we could afford. Having him attend the Closing was very beneficial, especially since we had to redo some documents to add my wife to the deed since she wasn't on the mortgage. That was handled very swiftly and if it was for Ethan being there we may have needed to reschedule the closing. Thanks again to Ethan for all his work on getting us our new home.”
